3 on the tree

161 with three speed on the tree. Crunchy first gear. Box is in fantastic condition with very low miles. Engine was recently removed for rear main seal. Fist gear has a slight crunch when entering at low speeds and is worse when trying to engine brake car. Can this be adjusted or is this normal with a crash gearbox?

Cheers

Fluid in footwell

Noticed some fluid in drivers footwell after a long drive in the HR. Brake or clutch most likely the culprit? Didn't have a chance to look at it further but thought I'd check if it's a known problem.

Wagon fuel return line...where do i tap into?

Hi guys. Ive installed a 34adm weber on my 202 in my hz wagon. I need to run a fuel return line back to the tank.
Which hose or line can i tap into? There are quite a few there. Also can it be all rubber hose running under the car or does it need to be steel lines?
Thanks
Jordan

Anyone seen this FB?

An old lady would be very happy to get it back: https://au.news.yaho...
Hopefully it gets back home and the low-life b*stards who took it get what they deserve.

Power steering pump woes

Hi all

just rebuilt the power steering pump on my HX Premier wagon (253) and fitted a new seal kit as per instructions and some post on this site.

The pump has been refitted and system bled of air (I jacked the car and turned lock to lock a few times - heard the air bubble out) but I have no pump pressure and running it to temp only results in 'manual' steering and no pump / pressure assistance. Belt tension is OK and the reserviour has ample new fluid in it.

Tyre pressures and other questions

Am running a set of Maxxis 185 x 80 13" 90S tyres and if you go by the Holden specs the psi should be 22 lb for crossply tyres. This sounds a bit too low for radials. Question is what are other FC owners running their radial tyres at. Old story too much pressure and wear the centres out too low and that won't be right either.

HR Rear Wheel Covers

Anyone know where these can be sourced from? I'm chasing a pair of blue ones for a HR Special Sedan. Ive checked eBay and gumtree but can't seem to locate any anywhere. Original ones would be grea.
Cheers in advance
